NLIAH functions to transfer to NHS Wales and Welsh Government

Monday, 18 February 2013
A review has been undertaken of the National Leadership and Innovation Agency for Healthcare (NLIAH), the Delivery and Support Unit (DSU), the Clinical Governance Support and Development Unit (CGSDU), the National Patient Safety Agency (Wales) and the Centre for Equality and Human Rights (CEHR). 
The purpose of the review was to simplify, align and streamline functions and accountabilities with the result that from 1 April 2013, the functions and staff of NLIAH will transfer to: 
  • Welsh Government
  • Public Health Wales NHS Trust
  • Shared Services Partnership
Welsh Government
Leadership development functions will transfer to Academi Wales, and the policy function associated with offender health will transfer to Welsh Government.
Public Health Wales NHS Trust
The improvement functions which are undertaken in various directorates in NLIAH and the Public Health Wales will be brought together within Public Health Wales, along with the functions of equality and human rights.
NHS Wales Shared Services Partnership
The all-Wales workforce functions will be transferred to the Shared Services Partnership.
In the short term, the majority of staff will continue to operate from Innovation House, Llanharan.
The DSU, CGSDU and Patient Safety Agency
The DSU, CGSDU and Patient Safety Agency will join forces to become a new Delivery Unit. Building on the work of the DSU, this unit will be responsible for the functions of assurance, improvement of performance and delivery. The unit will be aligned to the priorities of the Welsh Government but will remain an NHS body.
